Metairie's Krewes of Zeus and Hera have canceled their Monday night parades, citing the threat for severe weather, officials announced in a news release.

The parades were set to roll Lundi Gras evening in Metairie.

Hera was set to make its debut this year. Its partner krewe, Zeus, which is Metairie's oldest krewe, made headlines amid questions about its status but said it did plan to roll, at least until bad weather changed those plans.

The krewes still plan to stage an outdoor event at Veterans Blvd. and Severn Ave. beginning at noon on Monday.
